Nothing screams family time like spending an afternoon making cookies and memories in the kitchen with the kids or loved ones. Technology is limited in our house. Social interactions of all kinds are what’s encouraged. Sometimes impromptu cooking making sessions are just what the doctor ordered if someone is feeling blue or under the weather. Baking really does bring people together.
Keep simple ingredients in the pantry and you will be able to whip up a basic batch of cookies any time. Add-in’s to a basic recipe allow the baker to put their own spin on the cookies. Like adding m&m’s, nuts or leftover cut up holiday chocolate.
The first time we made these cookies the kids asked if they could dump in some cinnamon. Always up for a little experimenting I said why not. This idea worked and we changed up the recipe to include cinnamon. Having fun cooking in the kitchen, talking about life, laughing and creating lasting memories is what baking is all about.
Note: since originally posting this recipe, Bakers Chocolate Squares has changed their individual chocolate bar sizing. Where as 1 Bakers chocolate bar used to = 1 ounce, now it’s 4 bars = 1 ounce.
We hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we do.
